LA Celebrates Día de Muertos Los Angeles's Olvera Street celebrates Dia de los Muertos
Día de Muertos aka “The Day Of The Dead” incorporates the pre-Columbian, Aztec, Mayan and Catholic rituals surrounding death. The celebration is a bizarre, beautiful and spiritually signifiant moment for those that attend. In Los Angeles the most authentic of these gatherings takes place on Olvera St in Downtown Los Angles across from Union Station. Greeted by the sounds and smells of Mexico tonight felt as though we were in Mexico City not Los Angeles. Delicious food, awesome music and amazing scenery. Día de Muertos was a sight to see and if ever you have a chance to check it out it’s a must do in the City of Angeles.
